What you will learn:
All advocacy efforts and research on the topic of neuroinclusion and accommodations in the workplace stress one thing consistently: the need to meet your employees half way. The variable and unique needs of neurodivergent employees can make this practice particularly challenging.
In this Elective, time will be split. First, there will be a 30min presentation of important factors to be aware of for neurodivergent employees and potential support strategies for Dyslexia, ADHD, and Autism. Then we will then spend the remaining time discussing the unique needs of your specific organizational environment.
The goal of this workshop is to identify the unique challenges for neurodivergent employees in your organizational environment and to identify some potential changes and support strategies so that you are better equipped to meet your team members half way, thus removing some of the burden of ‘solutionizing’ from the individuals.
About the instructor:
Graham Hulbert is a Enginerd, Naturalist, Maker, and a Poet. He has made a career for himself leading large scale strategic transformations within a corporate environment. More recently his curious mind, passion for continuous improvement and experience in the field of change management have been aimed towards making the corporate environment more neuroinclusive.
Graham was diagnosed with dyslexia at age 7, and whisked off to boarding school at age 9. What young Graham didn't know what that he was more than dyslexic. He was wonderful, autistic and had ADHD! The privilege of his education, combined with often feeling alone, misunderstood and broken (as young Graham learned to interpret his undiagnosed autism), has turned Graham into a compassionate/passionate advocate for Neuroinclusion.
Whilst growing up, Graham often turned to nature for a sense of belonging. His love of the natural world is still strong today and you will often see it pop up in the imagery and analogies he uses in his training.
In Portland Oregon, where Graham calls home, he fulfills his drive for multiple 'special interests' by serving on the board for a local community science non-profit, and by volunteering for the forest service as a predator tracker, plus a trail steward with the Pacific Crest Trail Association, leading teams into the cascade mountains to restore and maintain the Pacific Crest Trail and its many access routes. When he isn't in the mountains he can be found engaged with a client in his consulting work, or there is also his workshop where he spends time restoring classic cars, fabricating furniture, and/or crafting leather goods for his small Etsy shop.. oh boy where does it end?
